yay!  you have a lot going on!  My best advice is to begin hydrating the night before.  Dont try to chug a bunch of water the morning of- you dont want to get a cramp and anyways the bathroom lines are usually horrendous!  

Have fun and relax and definitely treat yourself to a pedicure when it is all over!!

I just signed up for my first 10k – it’s going to be a week after we return from our honeymoon in the Bahamas. I’m figuring that white dress + bikini + race = The Motivational Trifecta 🙂

From a friend of mine who recently finished her first marathon: Do NOT pick race day to try out a new sport bra. She picked a bra that was really similar to her other ones, but clearly not similar enough – she ended up with some fairly awful chafing. 

Good luck!
